The people we support want the same things as everyone else – involvement, respect and the opportunity to live life as fully as possible. Our volunteers help them do that.

If you prefer to work behind the scenes in roles like administration, marketing, fundraising, or driving, you can still make a big difference to the lives of the people we support and we would be delighted to hear from you, too.

If you’ve got a skill and the commitment to volunteer, talk to us!

Why volunteer?

Our volunteers tell us that volunteering with Positive Futures:

  • Makes them happy when they see the difference they are making
  • Has enabled them to meet new people and create firm friendships, with the people we support, other volunteers and our staff
  • Gives them valuable skills and an opportunity to practice them – something worth mentioning on their CV

“Positive Futures was fantastic. It was my first real experience of volunteering and I thoroughly enjoyed it. I enjoyed myself and it was so rewarding to give some of the kids a chance to fulfil some of the dreams they could not achieve without my support.”

Who can volunteer?

People aged 16+ can volunteer to support children and young people. People aged 18+ can volunteer to support both children and adults. If you are caring, friendly, responsible and have patience and understanding with a positive outlook then this is for you. Your background doesn’t matter, although we will need references and we will need to carry out an enhanced Access NI check for most volunteer roles (at no cost to you as a volunteer).

How much time is involved?

We know that volunteers are busy, so we’ll work with you and agree a time committment that works for everyone.

“It’s a wonderful feeling knowing you are making a difference in someone’s life. When you see a smile that lights up a room you know you are doing something worthwhile.”
